    He is my favourite actor!!! He is the best actor! Even such an awful film as “The Iron man” was not so bad, because Robert performed in it. He has a rare talent!!!!

  • anne

    i just love robert downey. he is so good at what he does.

  • Del

    Ugh! I wish he didn’t win!
    He is SOOOO F’N Arrogant.
    Joseph Gordon Levitt should have won, BUT instead they go with the huge blockbuster movie……AGAIN…
    Robert Downey is the same in every movie! he’s the male Julia Robberts
    BOO!!!

  • Lela

    I’m so happy for him! he’s really the best actor of the world! and he’s handsome, beautiful, sexy, hot, carismatic, fascinating, irresistible…
    His eyes, his smile and his hair are the best of Hollywood!
    also Susan is very nice, good dress. A very nice couple!

  • Ilaria

    He’s a fantastic actor at all! big and different in every movie! I think he must win the Oscar! also for “Chaplin” and “In dreams” he deserved to win Oscar…

  • Anderson

    Best speech of the night and a great actor.

  • http://www.BatteryCanOpener.com Ethan

    This guy is the man. I’m glad he came back with Iron Man and now Sherlock Holmes.. Superb actor.

  • elodie

    so hot!!

  • http://foodiedatingsite.com foodiedatingsite

    Glad he is sober

  • annuk

    hot as hell!

  • Xanda

    Best speech of the night. I was so freaking happy when he won. Just love him.

  • Sara

    Lovely couple, what an example of teamwork. Susan being the producer and Robert the actor. You can tell they are crazy about each other.

    I don’t think Robert’s arrogant rather quirky and a bit offbeat. A quality that makes him really attractive. I wish there were more guys like him around.

    Oh and yes he is hot.

  • Bob

    What a great win & how happy he was.
    I like him as much as Brad Pitt.

    What a comeback story RDJ. you are my hero.
    He seems arrogant to some cause he has a very high IQ

  • lol

    He wasn’t being arrogant. You can tell that he was using sarcasm in his speech and being funny, which he was! Happy to see he won and got back on his feet.

  • yes

    he deserved the GG! Great actor.

    Too bad he “forgot” to thank the person he most owes his GG to: Jude Law. He really made RDJ shine in that movie. Without him, RDJ’s would not have gotten so much attention… and by the way, in the movie, JL owned quite a few scenes he shared with RDJ.

  • Marcus78

    WOW! GREAT rOBERT! YOU ARE MY FAVOURITE!

  • asg

    He is one of the most talented humanbeing in the world .He can act,dance sing and i dont’t think it is a come back because even the time he was using all that drugs he can be the perfect larry paul.Love him

  • Patricia

    Robert personifies the epitome of artistic, dramatic envelopment of his characters…such a unique gifted human being…may he always continue to appreciate these gifts, maintain his humor thru cloudy days, & continue to entertain us for decades…Love him to pieces!
    He’s turned his Shakesperian tragedy into a rainbow of fireworks!

  • christine (WeHo & NYC)

    Congrats Junior!!
    Charlie Sheen could learn a thing or two from this drug addict….
    (Like not acting psycho around women, for one thing.)
    Lovely tho, how the rich crazies flourish in Hollywood and are not held accountable by their peers. Morals & hypocrates…

  • Jokergurl

    @ Christine and Del he’s not arrogant at all, nor is he a a drug addict anymore you idiot! he’s well aware of where he’s been and who has helped him out, (his lovely wife, Joel Silver, Mel Gibson, JonFavreau just to name a few ) listen to damn speech a little better next time! Or go soak your heads in toliet water please. Anyway, LOVE Robert Downey Jr, he’s just an amazing talent, he’s such a cool speaker, so glad he won he deserves every award he gets. Not to mention he’s still friggin HOT and he’s IRON MAN!

  • christine (WeHo & NYC)

    @Jokergurl:
    Hey “psychotic-gurl”… once a drug addict & alcoholic… always one. Get educated, cause it seems YOU really need drugs for your estrogen. Bye psycho…. You’d be perfect for Charlie.

  • eliza

  • http://sexy!! sharyllee

    Robert did remembered and spoke about Jude very briefly last night , Robert and Jude are very good friends.. Robert is very smart and cute. Jude is more handsome!! Always love Jude!! Glad Robert won.

  • Fergy

    I am so pleased to hear that he won! I kept my fingers crossed all night! He is one of the few who has such a talent… im lost for words. I am very anxious for “Sherlock Holmes” to come out on Blue Ray. I hope it has a ton of extra features. Congratulations Robert on your award! <3 You ARE the best! =)

  • lene

  • Jazz

    And who gives a shit about Charlie Sheen? This post isn’t about him.

  • MiuMiu

    What a hilarious speech from Robert Downey Jr. at the Golden Globes! See it on the above link.

    I adore Robert D-Jr, he is absolutely the best actor around and he richly deserved the Golden Globe. Jude Law has had some lousy parts recently, but he makes Watson is own and the relationship between the two fo them is the heart of the film.

    We want a sequel, WOW!!!

  • http://engineersdating.com/ engineersdating

    He is a great actor

  • Jokergurl

    @ Christine I have more testosterone than estrogen girlie figure that one out. Robert Downey Jr. is not a drug addict not anymore, PAST tense, it’s gets a little tiring when stupid people keep bringing up drugs and Robert Downey Jr, he’s been clean for 5 years plus. Rambling on about it now makes you look like a jackass, he’s just a talented actor. I happen to like Charlie Sheen too and really don’t care what some internet poster thinks.

  • shania

    really happy to him so happy…
    one of the best actor that will be remembered always…
    luv u, robert…
